van Dyck

A six year research project into the technique of Sir Anthony van
Dyck is currently being carried out within the Paintings
Conservation Department of the National Gallery of Art.  The project
is nearing one-third of the way through and is being carried out by
Katherine (Kiffy) Stainer-Hutchins.  As well as cleaning and
restoring a number of works by Van Dyck  from the Gallery's
collection, the work is focusing on the artist's technique as it
relates to the Gallery's own holdings.  These total 18, and are
notably well represented in his Genoese period.

I am particularly interested in collating related material and/or
liaising with other conservators who have or are planning to work on
a Van Dyck, or who have technical files from past work on Van Dycks
in their care.  Of special interest is X-radiography and the
compilation of a digital image data base.  If there is anyone who
has any information or material they are willing to share, or indeed
any queries, would they please contact me
